Fate dealt a cruel blow on a pregnant woman who was on her way to hospital to deliver when she was killed on the spot in an accident at the intersection of Kulim Hi Tech Park, near Kulim on Sunday (Nov 25) morning.
Maziah Shaa’ri, 31, and her brother-in-law Muhammad Ghani Abd Razak, 26, who was the car driver, both died of serious injuries to the head and limbs in the incident at 6.27am.
Kulim district police chief Supt Ahmad Nasir Jaafar said the car was hit on the front right side by another car driven by a 37-year-old woman at the intersection.
The woman was heading to Serdang from Padang Serai.
Maziah’s two-year-old son was seriously injured while three other victims including the woman driver were slightly hurt and were treated at the Kulim Hospital.
Supt Ahmad said Maziah from Taman Mutiara, Sungai Kob in Kulim, who was accompanied by four other family members, was at the time being sent to the hospital to deliver her baby.
“We believe one of the cars did not stop at the intersection, resulting in the accident, but we are continuing with our investigations to ascertain the cause of the incident.
“It is still too early for us to make a conclusion,” he said in a statement.
